plans to announce jack lew to replace tim geithner. the president is expected to do that tomorrow. and hilda solis announced she will resign, while attorney general eric holder announced he will stay on for a second term. jay carney was asked this question about jack lew. >> working on a signature. >> the treasury secretary's signature, you see, appears on all reserve notes, dollar bills during his tenure. here is jack lew's signature, it really is. and here is what jack lew's signature would look like on a dollar bill. not everybody can have the style of john hancock. it was once said that the president had the handwriting that neared that of an illiterate. and of course, there is this, that signature? it may be more legible than jack lew, tim geithner's signature became the very neat, very legible cursive in the right-hand corner. tim geithner said he was forced to change his signature before it was fit to print. richard wolfe, when i was chief of staff at the senate finance committee, we of course had to confirm treasury secretary. and i had when i was all done -- this thing wa

of the treasury department. when we began this fiscal slope, curve, cliff discussion, tim geithner was involved, there was a sense jack lew would be involved. they were marginalized towards the end, and as glenn mentions, vice president biden was the guy to sweep in at the last minute to make the deal. congressional republicans sound like they don't really want to work with him. is that a problem for the administration? >> yes and no. the administration has done this in the past, you bring in the heavy to close the deal. it's like when you're trying to discipline your children, don't wait till your father gets home, you can kind of keep jack lew in the background to bring in him. there's a view of having someone who's strong, lew is not a fist pounder. lew derives his authority and respect from the command of the issues, and i don't mean the command of the issues, i mean the command of the numbers. he can dig down, divide fractions in his head. that's why he's a danger and threat to some house republicans. this isn't meant to be negative about the house republicans. they don't simply have sort

, possibly right before that with tim geithner's private calculations. >> how real is the concern among congressional democrats that as you crawl from crisis to crisis that it prevents the administration from advancing with long-range policies with regard to imgramigration or gun control. >> i don't think it should. the administration has enormous powers under existing law. for instance, they could institute large parts of the cap and trade bill which passed the house through regulation, through rule making and the president actually did institute a large part of what would have been our bill on immigration, the dream act through administrative action. the president has a lot of power and he should use it to solve the country's problems. >> how would you characterize your last stint in congress. how would you characterize that compared to this upcoming stint? >> well, we did a lot of good for a lot of people, particularly in our district and i think they'll be able to do it again. a lot of the best things that we did in the district had nothing to do with votes on the floor and the job

say, somebody reminded me that tim geithner changed his signature a little bit when he became treasury secretary because he's going to be on the bill. so maybe. >> let's see it again. bring that picture back, because we just showed what it would look like. that is his signature. that's jack lew. if you want to go to him -- he may be a doctor, maybe he has a ph.d. he's not a medical doctor as far as i know. it's got to be the world's worst signature, looks more like a doodle. >> i wonder how he came up with it. >> assuming that's confirmed. one more quick thing, we showed you the picture that the white house photographer took of the president and his top advisers during one of the fiscal cliff deadline meetings in the oval office, and they swear to us that somewhere hidden valerie jarrett is sitting on the desk, so there is a woman somewhere in this picture, but christian, jack lew, assuming jack lew is named treasury tomorrow and there will be a male chief of staff replacing jack lew, where are the women? >> well, andrea, there's no doubt that women's advocacy groups are critiquing and

's much rumored pick to succeed treasury secretary tim geithner. the odds on favorite jack liew. he would expect to be confirmed, but some in the business community, they're concerned, because he has little market or business experience. >>> and an eerie twist here in the search for that missing plane carrying fashion icon vittorio missoni. his wife and five others, a plane vanished friday off the coast of venezuela. but according to these new reports, the son of one of the men on board got a text message sunday night that said and i'm quoting this text, call now, we are reachable. the italian telephone company confirmed the message was sent but couldn't verify when it was written. crews continue the search off the country's coast. >>> in seaside heights, new jersey, look at this. look at this closely with me. this is that roller coaster and you see this man, he climbed to the tip-top of it, to call attention to the recovery from superstorm sandy or the lack thereof. there he is, scaling the same coaster chris christie said he vacationed at, took his kids to. the structure swept into the

tim geithner is going to leave possibly by the end of the month, which means ahead of all of the debt ceiling talks. do you think that would hurt the economy if he's not there to be the one to help sort of, i don't know, keep everything on balance? >> i do worry a little bit about this. there's no clear person who would have been named if he's leaving at the end of the month. the name tossed around most commonly is jack lew. but he's not a clear candidate yet at least. secretary geithner has been very instrumental in talking to the congress for the last couple years about the budget and about the debt ceiling. he was very involved in 2011. he's obviously been very involved the last couple of months. if he leaves, i think we could -- it really depends who takes over for him. but i think we're -- i think we're looking at a lot of big issues to face before march and so it's really going to come down to who that person is that takes over. >> yeah, certainly. have to talk a little bit of football because we always talk about the commercials and the super bowl and how much money they bring

considered failures. tim geithner's tenure has been controversial but i think broadly speaking what he did to write the financial system will be considered a tremendous achievement in the annals of economic policy-making. but again, they are in something of a rut, i think, in their economic policy-making at this point, and particularly in their approach to dealing with republicans. a lot of that, i'd say frankly the bulk of that blame falls on the house republicans and john boehner. but it's nevertheless a case that they just put somebody into the treasury department who they intend to have lead a lot of their budget battles who john boehner at this point essentially refuses to work with. during the 2011 negotiations, they said boehner and the republicans said we just don't want to deal with lew anymore. we don't feel we can get him to say yes to us. now, to some degree that might be because lew is reflecting the will of the president, but i just think there's a kind of a siege mentality a little bit at the white house that's showing up in their appointments, which is understandable, but i
